Thant Zin passed away

We are so sorry to inform that our classmate Thant Zin suddenly passed away by car accident at Oat Twin township (near Taungoo). Thant Zin passed away on Sunday early morning of April 3, 2005 at Oat Twin township hospital. The funeral arrangement will be in Yangon on April 5, 2005. IM (1) of 1986 will send a flower basket and donate 5 holy robes (Thingan) for him.

All of our classmates are deeply saddened by this shocking news about Thant Zin's untimely demise. Everyone has to go along this path but this was very untimely and unexpected departure. We remembered the days when he sang and performed for convocation dinner in 1985. And we all enjoyed his wonderful & energetic singing in our recent class reunions.

Last four years, he worked as a TMO (Township Medical Officer) in Pindaya and Thandaung Township. Then he moved to ThaNatBin Township. He is a very dedicated TMO who actively organized all immunization campaigns, vitamin A campaigns and other public health activities in his area. He has been greatly admired by his staff members as well as township authorities and people in those areas. As a government staff, he was transferred to many townships and where ever he went ... he brought his Karaoke machines. That is a trademark of Thant Zin and the reason why he sings very well.

Thant Zin will be missed. So would his wonderful singing. All our prayers and shared merits for his liberation to the highest attainment in next life, and eventually to "Nirvana".

With heartfelt condolences,
IM (1) of 1986
